with 194 films from 30 countries to be screened over 11 days, July 6-16.
“I am proud that this year’s program reflects just how far we have come as a movement, as a community and as storytellers. These films capture the true complexities of our lives, our loves, and our identities. But our advancements have only taken our community so far, and we are proud to champion this year’s filmmakers that capture the ongoing fight for our rights for freedom, for love, and for acceptance” says Christopher Racster, Outfest Executive Director.
Check out all the exciting films at outfest.org, before tickets go on sale next Thursday, June 8 to members and Monday, June 12 to the general public.
PRIDE UNDER FIRE June 7 | West Hollywood City Council Chambers | 7:30pm | FREE
SBS Dateline’s PRIDE UNDER FIRE takes us through Louisville, Kentucky following the Pulse Night Club shooting. In this documentary we see a nation divided, personified in the town of Louisville filled with those celebrating Pride and reclaiming their parade, and those deeply embedded in gun culture and exclusion. In this report, we hear from Louisville’s contradictory community; from religious groups, nightclub owners, and queer people of color – to gun enthusiasts and proprietors all making sense of the world and their beliefs post the Orlando shooting.
After the screening, there will be a discussion on where we are as a community one-year after the Pulse shooting.
